According to Football.London, DC United are in talks to sign Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil, with the MLS outfit said to have tabled an ‘attractive’ package to the playmaker.
Ozil has not even been included in Arsenal’s Premier League or Europa League squads this season, with the attacking midfielder not featuring in a single matchday squad in a run that’s now at 37 games.
Football.London’s Chris Wheatley reports that the DC outfit’s offer also includes the expansion of the World Cup winner’s ‘M10′ brand, in an enticing proposal that will see Ozil as the face of the club.
It’s added that DC, who represent the USA’s capital in the MLS, are also willing to expand Ozil’s ’39 Steps Coffee’ brand in their Audi Field stadium, as well as handing him his own merchandise line.

Football.London report that the 32-year-old has been away from training in recent weeks, with this update coming at the same time that Ozil has hinted at a transfer to his real homeland of Turkey.
It was reported earlier this season that Ozil would not be willing to walk away from his mammoth £350,000-a-week wages and lucrative bonuses until his deal expired in the summer, perhaps the superstar will change his stance whilst reflecting DC’s seemingly complete offer – both in regards to football and the playmaker’s hopes for life after he hangs up his boots.
Ozil will not leave Afc in January the wages he earns at Afc would not be matched by any other club so for that reason he will stay until the end of June when his contract expires.
But he is allowed to talk with other clubs from January onwards and where he goes is a straight forward choice ether America if a big money contract is offered for a couple of seasons or Turkey which is his home and where his long term future probably lies with a club offering less money.
Ozil is 32 now and no big teams are interested in a guy who when not injured plays well once every five or six games and disappears for the rest.
Ozil gets in the press more for his comments on basically everything from politics to his manager and the club who pays him,big teams and in fact most teams want thier players to play football not to make headlines about his views on politics.
In june Ozil will leave and i suspect many people within the Emerites will sigh with relief
The day Ozil leaves along with his little gang of Mustafi,Kalasniac and Guendouzi it will be a fresh start for the Afc squad and a major boost for Arteta for as Liam Brady recently stated Ozil is not a good man to have in the dressing room or on the pitch and nether are his little gang of players who under perform consistantly and lack discipline.
Arsenal Football Club will not miss Ozil when he has gone !
